Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt. Warren G. Harding. Famke Janssen.

You won’t believe what these people have in common!

Dutch-American-Heritage-Clogs-Blue-300But first, let’s talk about Dutch-American Heritage Day, which is November 16, 2017. It was in 1991 when the U.S. Congress officially voted to make November 16th as Dutch-American Heritage Day. President George H.W. Bush decreed the day be a way to celebrate the 200 years of friendship between the U.S. and the Netherlands. Did you know that the Netherlands was one of the first countries to recognize the U.S. as an independent country? Events are held in cities across America: Holland, Michigan; Houston, Texas; Los Angeles, California; Seattle, Washington, among many others.

famke-janssen-cr-250This year, a gala is being held in Los Angeles on the 16th to honor Famke Janssen, a Dutch actress, director, and former fashion model. Born in Amstelveen, the Netherlands, Janssen moved to New York city to attend Columbia University. She has worked for organizations that raise animal rights awareness, set international drugs and crime policies, and most recently to raise awareness about animal poaching. Proceeds from the gala will help fund education and research for cancer and for Dutch studies at two California universities.

Coffee In The News

Coffee With Bling

Glitter-Gold-Latte-200Golden glitter lattes are the next bling thing. A café in the West Midlands, UK, debuted golden glitter lattes. The non-toxic glitter is able to be used in food and drink, and apparently leaves you with a shiny lip gloss too. A café in Mumbai, India, is doing the same thing, with their “Diamond and Gold Cappuccino.”


As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!

Stay in Amsterdam, But Visit These Places

There is so much more to the Netherlands, home of Douwe Egberts. Today, we will highlight a few other cities in Holland that are travel-worthy, and of course, always serving Douwe Egberts at the best spots!

de-amstrdm-header-wp

Amsterdam is the 13th most-visited city in Europe by overnight tourists, but trust us when we say it is not the only place to visit if you are in the Netherlands for a day.

For instance, Rotterdam is the second-largest city, and has a very modern look and feel since being rebuilt after WW II. The unusual and innovative architecture includes floating houses, offices and a farm; an artistic cabled bridge nicknamed “The Swan”; the Art Nouveau Witte Huis (White House); the Markthal, a ginormous market hall with a ceiling that in itself is a work of art (see below); and, for something really on the nose, the Cool District, lined with eclectic shops and restaurants.

Rotterdam-Delft-Sights

If you love quaint, then you must stop in Delft. Home to the classic blue-and-white ceramics crafted in the area since the 1600’s, the original intent of the work was to emulate Chinese porcelain. Shops line the canals with a range of Delftware and other souvenirs. The town once served as the base of the ruling House of Orange, and you can visit the ancestral family church, Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), which overlooks the town’s market square. The gothic tower of the church stands over the tombs of the princes and princesses of the House of Orange.

Visit The Hague to see the seat of the Netherlands’ government and home to the royal family. The Hague is a center of global business too, so many expats live there. You’ll find a vast culinary scene influenced by the many home countries of the residents and several museums, all outstanding in their own right. See the Royal Picture Gallery, the world’s largest Mondrian collection, a spectacular private car collection, and of course, the history of the city and its people.

Self-Driving Car Gets Insured

We recently wrote about the first group of shared self-driving cars being planned for use in the Netherlands. Now the first car insurance company in the Netherlands has stepped up to insure the self-drivers. The company is already the largest car insurer in the country, and predicts this new plan will turn the car insurance market on its head. That is, insurance premiums will no longer be based on accident history. Plans include remediation for the electronics and software used in the car when accidents occur.

Schipol Clock in Amsterdam Performs

Because Douwe Egberts is based in the Netherlands, we like to keep up with news there.  Here’s our latest installment of

The Netherlands In The News

At Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport, a Dutch designer has installed a new piece in his Real Time series:  A 10-foot-high clock which cleverly displays video through the clockface.  A uniformed worker is carefully painting the hands of the clock minute by minute, using the time in between to tidy his work space.  The Schipol Clock was based on an earlier piece by the same artist.  Go to our Facebook site for a short video of the work in action or click here to go to the original post’s site.

What’s Brewing in The Netherlands

Satellite_image_of_the_NetherlandsBecause we like Douwe Egberts coffee so much, we always like to stay in touch with the news in The Netherlands, home to this great company.

Just this month, The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam unveiled a long-lost Van Gogh painting that had spent years in an attic gathering dust because it was thought to be a fake.  This is the first large painting by the Dutch master discovered since 1928.  The work will go on display at the museum for a full year, starting later this month.

Speed skating is a popular sport in The Netherlands, which is hardly surprising in an area where skating on the frozen canals and lakes is a national pastime.  Just announced this month, the Dutch city of Almere, across the harbor from Amsterdam, will be the home of a new national top speed skating stadium.   The Icedome, as it is called, will be ready for competitions starting in late 2016.

In other news, this month the United Nations published the second annual World Happiness Report. The Netherlands ranked 4th in the world, the same as in last year’s report.  Denmark earned the top spot.  The U.S. ranked 17th.  (Earlier this summer, we reported about another international economic agency using multiple factors found The Netherlands to be the 8th happiest country in the world.  Australia was number 1.)

There’s always a lot of news from The Netherlands, that’s for sure.  We here at Enjoy Better Coffee, Inc. also have some great news for you:  Fresh shipments of coffee and tea have just arrived from The Netherlands, ready to be shipped to you.  All of your favorites are restocked.
